SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- An ex-high school English teacher in San Antonio accused of throwing lewd parties for boys must serve 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to child sex abuse-related counts.

Prosecutors in San Antonio say Jared Anderson was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to multiple counts of sexual performance by a child and indecency with a child by exposure.

The 29-year-old Anderson was a teacher at Judson High School when he was arrested in March 2016 on allegations he hosted sex parties for boys.

Police have said Anderson encouraged the boys to get naked and engage in sexual activity with him and each other during gatherings at his residence.

One of these parties happened February 12, 2016 with seven boys ranging from 15 to 17 years old.

There was a sign on the door reading, "The last one to strip naked loses." Police said all of the boys got naked and Anderson coerced them into lewd conduct. Police also said Anderson and another 17-year-old boy exchanged pictures of each other's genitals.

Authorities say Anderson later texted apologies to some parents amid the investigation.
